Did you graduate from (or do you attend) a public high-school?
Catholic school pre-school through high school 🙏🏼📿
In the 80’s Before the Crazy
Different public school every year from kindergarten to 9th. Then high school had 2nd worse reputation in entire Bay Area for drugs at that time. It was rough for a shy, goody goody girl trying to fit in.
Private. It was great discipline.
in my last year, but I'm doing post-secondary so I take part highschool part college classes
Lol had too much fun in high school... all 6 years. But yes I graduated, did my remaining 12 credits in 4 months. With a month to spare before I would have been kicked out.
That explains a lot. Also helps nullify your opinion towards school and kids that age.
Nullifying an opinion? Interesting.
In 1958 when public schools were excellent!
My high school was from 8th grade to 12th. It sucked.
I'd your middle school close on your 7year?
Public school K-8, but private high school.
Went to private school from 9-12
Went to a Private School from 6th grade through 12th
Catholic school all the way through.
Wow!! Some have to put a political slant on everything.
What’s the slant?
Take a look below.
I was homeschooled for all twelve years.
What did you think of it?
It was good. Toward the end things started slipping because we moved internationally and Mom got really busy so she couldn’t keep up with three kids in school. But I’m definitely glad I didn’t go to public school.
The public schools in my area aren't that great. A lot of my classmates now who came up in the local highschools struggle with rather basic concepts. So for that reason, I'm glad I was homeschooled too. However, there were definitely challenges to it.
Yes, before they got overrun & taken over by PC Leftists !
I hear this crap a lot as if conservatives cant be teachers.
Not all but some🤨❗️My daughter in law & oldest grandson are all excellent school teachers along several other family members non of which teach leftist or any other propaganda‼️
Leftists have a monopoly on learning things.
What leftist propaganda do you believe is being taught in public schools?
Get off your lazy Leftist butts & Google “political propaganda taught in public schools”, you’ll find 80%-90%-is a Leftist agenda🤨‼️
If it were up to Shippy, all public schools would be in session on Sundays only.
Cud, another Leftist trying to provide their own false thoughts,narratives & statements for me🤨❗️School should be any other day beside Sunday, that’s his day & it needs to be left that way‼️
Teachers are often leftist because they’re educated. Education is correlated with leftism.
I googled your query. Top five sites included:
1- The New York Post, right wing bias.
2- enigmose.com, featured articles on their home page include Natural Incidents of Time Travel (the author shares his own experience), Africans in Ancient America (“There goes the neighborhood!”), Dinos and Dragons (suggesting coexistence) & Nuclear Warfare in Ancient India (“Archaeologists uncovered ... nuclear ruins from pre-history”).
3- ascd.org, “Can Your Students Recognize New Forms of Propaganda?”
4- home60515.com, the article called out teachers as bigots undermining morals having no respect for science. HOME stands for “Heterosexual Organized for a Moral Environment.”
5- fee.org, who claims, “Education Is the State's Greatest Tool for Propaganda” which could be true but also claims they “saved the US from post-WWII socialism,” which may be a stretch.
I couldn’t find any examples of propaganda. Just a lot of accusations and some crazies. I don’t support the left or right. I support facts.
Yeah everybody who’s not a Leftist, Socialist, Marxist, is called crazy or ignorant, that’s they’re self serving propaganda narratives🤨‼️
That rabbit hole just gets deeper and deeper.
This isn’t an attack Shippy. I’m looking for evidence to support your claim. You didn’t provide any and I couldn’t find any. As a grandfather, I imagine you’re pretty far removed from the public school system. I have two kids currently in attending public schools and I haven’t experienced any leftist motives. It appears your claims are grounded in speculation and political bias.
I graduated high school a year ago and I can tell you I had plenty of conservative teachers and liberal teachers, who both refused to speak their political opinion in class because it’s illegal.
I sometimes talked politics with teachers after class and I had two math teachers with very polar opposite opinions, an extremely liberal history teacher but a very conservative government teacher. They all encouraged me to question everything and not just take what I see for granted.
But apparently I’ve been brainwashed by liberals..
My daughter’s current Honors ELA and Government teachers are very right wight Teumpers and, while it’s against school policy, went ahead and let the kids know. The work she has is obviously slanted in favor of, not Conservatism, but Trumpism. This has been ongoing throughout my children’s educations yet both are independently minded. Maybe you just raised followers?
Katy, nope all my whole family was & is encouraged to think for themselves, the net affect of that, is they are all Independent thinkers & voters, we do have one niece & husband who are genuine DemLeftists, which their families are Conservative on both sides, which means lots of times they leave the family gatherings early in a triggered offended huff, because somebody that loves them inadvertently said something they didn’t agree with or like❄️😡‼️
That’s interesting, your whole family thinks indepently, but only two aren’t Conservative. How Independent of y’all.
So I see we sidetracked from the main conversation, but I’d just like to drive this home.
If your kids think for themselves, what does it matter if what they are taught is left or right? Wouldn’t they be smart enough to develop their own opinion independent from what they’re taught?
There are some strengths or weaknesses but few exceptions in most cases, during my life time most of the people with character, honesty & integrity, who genuinely care for the welfare of others, & unselfishly serve the people, with no hidden agendas or ulterior motives, are now almost extinct. Over the past 60 years, I’ve seen a paradigm shift in which, those people are almost all gone, now no political party speaks or thinks of themselves as being public servants, or genuinely serving the people’s needs, only pandered to them, while not fulfilling most of what was promised. Wake up ! The system is working you,& no longer working for you, as the dis-United States continues its downward spiral, as that which once was spoken of as good, is now spoken of as evil & that which is evil is now spoken of as good, which is rotting soul & conscience of this Nation ! If it continues, it will either implode of its own excesses or explode into another U.S. Civil War !!!
The US isn't headed for civil war. We are a pretty united people when ridiculous rhetoric like that is pushed aside for rational conversation. Don't believe the hype Shippy and for goodness sakes stop watching Fox news. Turn of the TV and love your neighbor.
Omg, you believe politics are just now losing its integrity?
katly, read my post❗️ I said the greatest decline has occurred over the last 60yrs🤨‼️
Shippy, the past sixty years is considered modern American history, so yeah, now. I read your post and for the life of me can’t remember a point in history when politics wasn’t self serving before outward serving.
Really that’s your reassuring statement❓This country is in the greatest Societal & Constitutional crises, since it come into existence❗️Your response, is Oh please❓
Self serving yes❗️But even worse, self corrupting‼️
I think the teeth grinding hyperbole is exhausting. The chicken little style of panic in your voice tells everyone you've been watching too much Alex Jones.
This moment is not the greatest Societal and Constitutional crisis in American history, 😂😂, we just elected a moron as president, he only has two more years.
Yeah, your own Leftist version of the sky is falling & everything is going down the tubes, it’s all been done in 2 1/2 yrs by🤬Trump❗️Really❓Now whose being a CNN, CNBC & every other alarmist Lying Leftist propaganda machine❄️‼️
😂😂😂😂, I ❤️ emojis too, 🙄.
Also, thanks Shippy for getting that song stuck my head👍
Your welcome😉, I only wish more of what I say would stick in your head🤔🤗
😂😂, I’ll stick with songs. If we ever agree I’ll let you know😉
katlycomelately, Fair enough❗️ agreed😉
Yes, one of the best in the country.
Yes, and I've taught at a public school for over 30 years. Very good schools, all of them.
Of course. My parents knew better than to put on airs, like the hoidy toidy rich people.
Pha, still blathering about the suppressing evil rich holding down your class envying “Bolshevik Brethren” Comrades arise & bring down the elite wealthy bourgeois❗️Which now perfectly describes Leftist condescending elitists‼️
So you're saying that Public Schools are more elitist than Private ones?!
Yep they sure are❗️especially if they aren’t Leftists, Socialists, Communists, atheists, agnostics, or any other religion except Christians or Jews, but especially Conservatives. The reason almost all of my “non elitist” family attend or have attended private schools, while paying both for “your kids public school educations” & our kids private school educations❗️& the rest of my middle class family worked hard to make it happen, it’s our choice & right to do so‼️
I have attended high school but I’m currently homeschooled.
I went to a catholic high school (and elementary school).
Nope. Homeschool. Graduating class of one.
I went to a boarding school
I was forced to go to Horace Mann and lost all of my friends at the time. I’ve always felt it’s important not to do things like that to children if at all possible.
Yes, unfortunately. I hated school.
Proudly no. It was a Catholic school.
I’m surprised you went to catholic school but I actually have no idea why I am.
That makes two of us.
cuz Catholic schools are notoriously high-quality in the education they provide
Shit, man not the one I went to.
Maybe it was you being a shitty person, and not their curriculum?
It wasn’t the curriculum either, it was the teachers. It felt like none of them had read the Bible.
You, being a drug addict, had nothing to do with it also, I’m sure. Don’t blame the school for your problems at home, kiddo.
“I buy the drugs” is the title of a song. It’s not a statement of myself:
Cool story, bro.
I was complete opposite. Ha!
Lol! Look at us, all over the map!
Public: First half of K
Private: Second half of K
Public: 1-first half of 3
Private: Second half of 3-8
How about that for creative?!?
Lol. I can add private K to the mix if that helps!!!
Graduated from. It was a pretty good school, I think.
